Found October 05, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
Don Kelly was the victim of an errant foul ball on Saturday. The moment came in the second inning when Detroit Tigers teammate Omar Infante fouled a pitch off that just so happened to smack directly into Kelly standing in the on deck circle. What are the odds, you ask? Apparently, better than one might think. It could have ended much worse for him, though. Namely, the groin region. Via For the Win

Anibal Sanchez, Detroit Tigers Real Ace, to Start Game 3

The Detroit Tigers will send Anibal Sanchez to the mound in Game 3 of the ALDS against Oakland Athletics hurler Jarrod Parker. Game 1 starter Max Scherzer held the A’s to two runs in seven innings while striking out eleven, and Game 2 starter Justin Verlander went a step further, throwing seven shutout innings with ten strikeouts. So how can Sanchez be the Tigers...

Tigers will start Peralta in ALDS Game 3

DETROIT -- As each exhausted player and manager made his way to the podium at Comerica Park on Sunday afternoon, they agreed on two things: They hadn't gotten nearly enough sleep, and they aren't surprised that the Tigers and A's have combined for only six runs in the first two games of the ALDS. "This is what postseason baseball is like," said Tigers catcher...

Game 2013. Playoffs 2: Tigers at A’s

This new season is off to a great start. For the “bad guys,” 27 outs and 16 of them strikeouts. 2 runs, and you can practically write off one of them. 3 hits, 6 baserunners. This, for the good guys, against an Oakland team that has pretty much demolished everything in its path since they fired up the steamroller in their last meeting with the Tigers. Outstanding. Let’s compare...

Scherzer dazzles as Tigers take Game 1 from A's

It doesn't matter all that much to Max Scherzer when or where he pitches, or exactly how he goes about piling up his victories. Pitching the opener of the playoffs still meant plenty - and his spectacular Game 1 performance provided quite an October jolt for the Detroit Tigers as they chase a return trip to the World Series. Given the ball from manager Jim Leyland ahead of...

A's lose 3-2 to Scherzer, Tigers in Game 1

Max Scherzer and his bullpen stymied that late-game swagger that carried the Oakland Athletics so many times this season. The A's were rattled and frustrated, and they showed it - an uncharacteristic scene for this easygoing group of AL West champions. Scherzer overpowered Oakland's hitters with his dominant fastball, and then baffled them with his off-speed stuff. He struck...

ALDS Schedule: Times Set for Games 3, 4, 5 of Tigers-A’s Series

The Detroit Tigers’ two potential home games vs. Oakland in the ALDS both were handed early start times by Major League Baseball. The Tigers and A’s will start Game 3 at 1:07 p.m. ET Monday, with Game 4 (if necessary) set for a 5 p.m. start. (Should be fun getting in and out of the city for that one …) If the Red Sox-Rays series ends in three, that Game 4 time would push back...

Three Things We Learned After Game 1 Of ALDS

The Detroit Tigers got off to a 3-0 lead in the first inning off of Oakland ace Bartolo Colon in last night’s game one of the ALDS. It would prove to be all of the offense that the Tigers would get and would need as Max Scherzer was in typical Scherzer form by striking out 11 and giving up only two runs. After the game, I began to think about a few things that we could take...

It’s A Walk-Off: A’s Beat Tigers 1-0

The Oakland Athletics walked off against the Detroit Tigers in the bottom of the 9th Saturday, winning 1-0 on a Stephen Vogt bases-loaded single.  The win tied the A’s with the Tigers in the ALDS at one game apiece with Game 3 coming Monday in Detroit. Tigers starter, Justin Verlander, went 7 innings and struck out 11 while giving up only four hits.  Matching that effort was...

Detroit vs. Oakland ALDS: Position by position breakdown

The autumn winds are blowing in Detroit and after finishing off the regular season by getting no-hit by Henderson Alvarez of the Miami Marlins it’s time for postseason baseball. And for the second straight year — and the fourth time ever — the Tigers and A’s will square off in the postseason. With these two teams and their familiarity playing each other when it counts the...

A’s Fan Tased and Put in Headlock After Attacking Cops (Video)

Yesterday during the Oakland A’s vs Detroit Tigers games a fan decided to attack security and the police. As you can guess, that didn’t turn out well for him. He got put in a nice MMA headlock and got tased for his troubles. Nice work Oakland.

A's Rookie's Team Up To Down Detroit

((ht: For those of us on the east coast, it's tough, even on a Saturday night to stay up and watch west coast sporting events. And it appears for those of us sleepyheads, we missed a lot. The Oakland A's evened up their best of 5 ALDS series with the Detroit Tigers late Saturday night after rookie Stephen Vogt's single in the bottom of the 9th off Rick...

Athletics-Tigers Preview

On another team, he might be an ace. For the Detroit Tigers, Anibal Sanchez is the No. 3 starter - at least in this AL division series against Oakland. Sanchez takes the mound Monday for Game 3 between the Tigers and Athletics after the teams split a pair of pulsating one-run games in Oakland. The A's evened the series Saturday night despite a brilliant performance by Detroit...
